Welcome to Eden’s Expeditions! My name is Eden Shamy, and this is a blog where I detail my travels and other experiences. Often full of food, fun, and adventure, I hope everyone can find something worthwhile in my writing.
Get to Know Me
I’m a 16 year old girl getting through my second year of high school. I really look forward to all that summer has to offer in terms of travel. I have two brothers by the names of Noah and Jonah. My family and relatives often get their names mixed up. For the most part, I’ve grown up in Oregon and traveled to various places in the Pacific Northwest. One can often find me writing or reading in my bedroom, if not listening to music. Of course, I cannot say the same for the times I am up in an airplane or exploring some place new.
My family and I have had some crazy adventures together, taking practically all modes of transportation for the means of new experiences. The first time I ever rode a train was on our trip to Europe that occurred the summer after my third grade year. I’m sure you can tell from this old, low quality picture that my brother’s and I are exhausted, but that didn’t stop us from playing Go Fish! for hours on end. It was the only card game that we understood how to play, and it managed to keep us entertained throughout the entirety of the trip.
Some of my favorite travel activities are visiting theme parks. I especially enjoy riding roller coasters, no matter how intimidating. I also really enjoy trying new foods, and I hope to always be someone willing to be adventurous. On the other hand, I really love to lay out in the sun whenever I get the chance. Living in Oregon can make you very grateful to get even an ounce of sunlight because it rains there almost every day, except in the summer. Despite the rain, a day in Portland is not to be taken for granted. I’ve grown to love the diversity in food and style.
Born in Idaho, I first traveled outside of the country when I was just one month old. Since then, I’ve been traveling all over. I’ve been to sixteen different countries, other than the one I live in. This list includes Jamaica, Italy, Thailand, and so many more. I am excited to add many more to that list as time flies past and my knowledge and experience with travel grows.
I would also consider myself a lover of music, and to the dismay of my mother, I have earbuds in all the time. In the future I hope to enjoy many more concerts and write about my concert experiences!
